Vivo 'Zetoni' model 200 'Stradivari' Cello
4/4 (full size), Crafted in 2017, New
Deep, dark and mellow, this is a juicy cello that's easy enough to play, yet won't hold you back when you want to express yourself more fully. Appropriate for beginners because of its ease of play, these are also responsive enough for the technical demands of an advanced cellist.
The Vivo USA line continues to provide some of our best selling cellos. Hand-crafted in Beijing, China, even the lowest priced models are all solid carved with inlaid purling and ebony accessories (unless noted). We have found that the Vivos always play well beyond their price point. Often earning my ‘Easy’ badge, even the higher priced cellos, such as the Zetoni 200 and 100 line, are frequently easy enough for even beginners to play. This makes the Vivos a perfect investment for beginners who don’t want to outgrow their first instrument, or for more advanced students on a tight budget.
Based in Southern California, Vivos are made in workshops selected by the owner of Vivo, who is a cellist. One of his favorite workshops has a 40-year veteran craftsman who specializes only in cellos. The owner personally hand-selects many of the higher end models, such as the Limited edition cellos. The 1717 Rugeri and 1777 Guadagnini models are a special project for Linda West Cellos hand-crafted following all the dimensions and design nuances of the original.
Cello comes with a hard case
All cellos are setup or adjusted by Linda and played before shipped, guaranteed.
